The International BRICS Club supports the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, as well as the efforts of the UN for a peaceful settlement. This is stated in the declaration published following the results of the unification summit held under the chairmanship of China.
“We support negotiations between Russia and Ukraine. We also discussed concerns about the humanitarian situation in and around Ukraine and expressed support for the efforts of the UN Secretary-General, agencies of the UN system and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to provide humanitarian assistance in accordance with the guiding principles of humanity, neutrality and impartiality established by the resolution 46/182 of the UN General Assembly, — the declaration says.
In addition to Russia, the BRICS group includes China, India, Brazil and South Africa.
Russian-Ukrainian peace talks were suspended in mid-May. Moscow blames Kyiv, as well as its Western partners, for stopping them. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the country would return to negotiations after the cessation of hostilities.
The head of US national intelligence, Avril Haynes, indicated in mid-May that Washington sees no prospects for successful negotiations between Russia and Ukraine in the near future. According to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Russia will go to “serious negotiations” with Ukraine if he realizes that he cannot break its defense. French President Emmanuel Macron said that “at some point” Zelensky will have to conduct a dialogue with Russia.
